I have a little first hand experience with BH 209 after todays testing. I used the pre measured plastic BH 209 tubes filled to the 100 grain volume mark. I used the recommended CCI 209 magnum primers. The gun is a Traditions Vortek with a 28" barrel sporting a 3.5-10 Bushnell Scopechief. The sabots used are Dead Center 200gr 40 caliber all lead bullets with a polymer tip. I only fired 6 rounds and I didnt have a good shooting setup so grouping was not really attempted. As for the BH 209....did not have to clean the bore at all, no problem seating the 6th shot, no issues with a fouled breech plug, instant ignition and not much smoke. I am sure I could shoot more rounds without cleaning the bore, but I will clean it up tonight. The Vortek is a very fine gun and feels really good in my hands...more like a centerfire rifle. So....Its a 2 thumbs up for BH 209 and I have 5lbs of this fine product. I am certain all who come in contact with this powder will be converted. Also 2 thumbs up for the Traditions Vortek. Muzzleloader hunting just moved a major step forward. Also I would like to add that the CCI primers burned clean and there was no blowback at all. By the way, My Brother was there with his Traditions Buckhorn using 777 pellets. He said he probably had 5 or 6 shots on it since last cleaning. He had to almost pound the bullet into the bore and bent his ramrod in the process. He finally got the bullet seated and it did fire. Just saying He is going to switch to BH 209 after today and He really liked the Vortek as well.
